Still waitlisted for November LSAT, is January 2020 LSAT too late for Fall 2020?

I'm registered for the November 2019 LSAT, but every test center is currently full. My account says that I have a seat reserved but I'm technically not guaranteed a spot yet. Does anyone know if LSAC usually finds locations for reserves? I'm nervous that they may make me take the January LSAT instead. I'm trying to get scholarships at decent schools (not necessarily aiming for t-14, but will apply to a few) but I'm not sure if this is possible applying this late in the cycle. I didn't score that well for September and I basically only have a month to study for November, so I wouldn't mind taking January to have more studying time. I really want to start in 2020 but I don't know if that's realistic if I have to do the January LSAT. Would appreciate any advice or feedback

    From what I understand (after being on a waitlist for a seat for the October test), you are guaranteed a seat for the November test. The only thing that is not certain is which test center you'll be placed at.

    Depends, if your numbers are solid with the schools you apply to after the Jan Lsat, they will make room for you.

    Thanks! You were right they were able to place me, but I’ve decided to withdraw because I don’t feel ready

    Thanks that’s a good point! I feel like I would still be rushing it for the January test, so I’ve decided to delay

    Well they cancelled the November exam anyhow, so most who didn't take it then either took a makeup option on 12/8, or will do the January date tomorrow. How far out do you plan to delay?

    Oh wow, I didn't know that! I actually decided to delay until next cycle lol. I didn't really study for more than two months, but now that I'm off from school I feel that I'll be able to focus more. So I'll probably take the June or July LSAT of this year.
